Hi Adele
Maybe a game of easy bingo, or using noodles and balloons for movement. Word matching on a whiteboard eg: knife and fork, salt and pepper. Using soft throw balls into a bucket. Singing songs with movement. Row row your boat, grand old duke of York while marching.

Exercise programs are always good and they can be done in a wheel chair so everyone can be involved.

Hi Adele - I believe pool noodles are called woggles or water logs in the UK!
